registration will also begin to accept applications from other areas from Monday, according to the Ministry of the Interior (MOI).

As of July 2, 18 cities and counties in Taiwan allow gay residents to list their partners in city household registration records, MOI official Chai Lan-ping (翟蘭萍) said Sunday.

So far, only four cities and counties have yet to introduce same-sex partnership registration — Hualien, Taitung, Yunlin and Penghu counties, Chai said.

But from Monday, gay couples from non-complying areas will be able to seek same-sex partnership registry in other cities and counties.
